The American singer, songwriter, record producer, and former record executive stepped out in style with his wife at an exclusive event intended to raise awareness of two awful conditions.


Smokey Robinson and his wife, Frances Robinson, attended the 20th annual HollyRod DesignCare Gala on July 14, where the couple were dressed to impress.

The gala aims to shed light on autism and Parkinson's disease, and this year honored Magic Johnson with the “ AT&T HollyRod Humanitarian Award.”

For the occasion, Smokey wore a bright purple three-piece suit, with a white-button down shirt, and a matching purple patterned tie.

His wife wore a pair of bright red trousers and a knitted jacket with red and royal blue accents on the edges of the garment.


They looked relaxed and happy as they enjoyed the festivities.

Among the events that took place at the gala was a special musical performance by legendary soul-funk band Morris Day and the Time, and a fashion show by designer Christian Siriano who showed of the Spring/Summer collection.

Some of the guests in attendance included Reverend Jesse Jackson, Christian Siriano, Morris Day and the Time, Smokey Robinson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Laila Ali-Curtis, Jimmy Jam, Leah Remini, Ray Parker Jr., Lynn Swann, and Chad L.


Smokey is well known as the founder and front man of the Motown vocal group the Miracles, for which he was also the chief songwriter and producer.

He was the group's leader from its 1955 origins as the Five Chimes until 1972 when he announced his retirement from the group to focus on his role as Motown's vice president.

A prolific songwriter, Smokey is credited with 4,000 songs and 37 Top 40 hits, including Tears of a Clown, Tracks of My Tears and Love Machine.


Now 78, the iconic singer is still recording new music, gives the occasional performance, and maintain a busy tour schedule.

He has a son, Berry Robinson (born in 1968), and a daughter, Tamla Robinson (born in 1969), from his marriage to fellow Miracles member, Claudette Rogers.

The singer also has another son, Trey, from an affair he had during his marriage to Claudette Rogers.

Smokey married Frances in May 2002.
